Both GRUB and LILO have dual booted Mandrake and XP fine for me. Working 100% good, with no extra configuration.
At first on 9.1, I used LILO, which booted XP fine. Because I was a complete newbie and had no idea what I was doing, I re-installed because I couldn't figure out how to login (!) and used GRUB that time. I don't know why. LOL.
That booted XP and Mandrake fine, for the 2 months I used 9.1.
Now I'm using 9.2 and LILO, and I haven't had any reason to boot up into Windows, but it's on the menu and I'm sure it'll work fine if I ever need to get into Windows.
I have windows on hda (1 big partition) and Linux on hdb (with /, swap, & /home partitions). LILO is, and GRUB was, on hda.
Just use GRUB or LILO. I don't think the windows bootloader would work as well, or be as easily configurable, etc.
Mandrake asked me where it should put the bootloader. I just stuck with the default, which was on hda.
